Ever hear about a party on a weekday? Well Jason Burruss Owner/Curator at Purple Couch decided a Thursday would be the perfect evening to blow everyones mind with a huge event on a weekday. If you haven’t heard about Jason Burruss as an Artist or the event he put together last year then you might be living under a rock in the middle of another cosmos; Jason not only has amazing talent with wire but he has the ability to drive hundreds if not thousands of people out of their homes to attend his events.
From the moment I entered the Glitter Dome, which is located in Denver, Colorado, I felt an invigorating feeling of happiness and positive vibes. I was greeted by a group of very enthusiastic people with smiles on their faces, radiating an abundance of love! Not sure if the crew at Purple Couch planned the event to fall on National Hug Day but it sure worked out in their favor as people seem to enjoy the door fee of a hug or a dance. Something that really made this event amazing was the lack of Alcoholic beverages; most events tend to focus on alcohol which can ruin the vibes (no one likes the drunks). Everything about The White Out event was perfection, from the decorations to the layout and set up. Entering the Art gallery section of this event felt like walking into a mini festival with each artist having ample room and lighting to display his/her work. I would recommend providing a little more room for people to walk in and out of the gallery nextime, it was a rather tight squeeze as many people stopped to admire the beautiful pieces.
One of my favorite parts of the event were the visuals provided by Pickles Visuals that were projected on three large screens, two of which stood from floor to ceiling allowing guest to dance in the projections. Every transition was breathtaking, almost made me feel like a kid again looking up at fireworks! Along with the amazing visuals was the music and performances provided by Erothyme, YuYu, Cualli (ft. Sophia Dhara Boedecker), Moon Frog, Jason Burruss, Eukarya, and Michael Svenson (Acoustic Opening).
Not only did Purple Couch plan a magical experience with aerial arts, live painting and music but they had a Healing Center provided by Anita Griego and Nina Johnson. Overall Jason and his crew did such an amazing job with this event that at one point I found myself feeling thankful for knowing such a positive and humble man. I’m looking forward to the next Purple Couch event which I’ve heard rumors that it will be March 24! Be sure to check out the event page so you don’t miss the next magical evening!
Thank you Jason and everyone else for the amazing night!
